Dept. of Education holds First Bullying Summit

Ad Feedback

The Department of Education hosted the first ever bullying summit on Capitol Hill Wednesday.

Officials called on both governmental agencies and private groups to help craft a national strategy to reduce bullying.

Studies show the problem is growing at a disturbing rate. Thirty-two percent of students reported being bullied at school in 2007.

Bullying victims often suffer from low self-esteem, heath problems, and suicidal thoughts.

Authorities believe two teens in Massachusetts committed suicide in 2009 as a result of being bullied.

The high profile cases involved 15-year-old Phoebe Prince and 11-year-old Carl Walker-Hoover, who both hanged themselves.
